Hello, I'm Gillian Ryan from San Diego, CA. I teach at the PRIDE Academy at Prospect Avenue School. This year I have 5th graders. This is our first year with a school- wide PBL focus. I look forward to connecting and bouncing ideas around.
Hi everyone. My name is Zhan Yi, a postgraduate student East China Normal University, major in learning sciences. I learned how to teach computer at undergraduate level and have taught computer in a junior high school as a student for two months. My research interest is technology integration and teachers' knowledge of it. Glad to be here!

Hi every one
My name is Omaya zamel
I am a founder of a private school in Amman Jordan, holding MA in education from UMASS, married with three children. I started running the school in 1988 by offering our National Jordanian Program and continued developing and expanding in facilities and programs as well. Our school now is accommodating more than 1000 students with an international student body. .
Hi. My name is Caronne. I am the Teacher-Librarian at an independent Prek-8th grade Friends school. I also do tech-support for the school. I am interested in learning about tools that connect people around the world and help our students to express themselves in new and creative ways.
Hello~ My name is Nicole LaRochelle. I teach for the Arizona Virtual Academy, a K-12 school. I just started my Masters in Instructional Media. As a part of that program, I am learning about new ways to 'network' as a professional. I am hoping to gain ideas and to contribute where I can. My current position is in our middle school. A unique thing about our school is that we are a home-based public school. In most cases, students are taught by their parent(s) with the support of a certified teacher (me). It's really been an interesting experience. I look forward to seeing how this network can enhance what I do.
Bob Kachurek here, from Cleveland, Ohio USA. I've been a science educator for 31 years - most of that time teaching middle school students. My current grade level, 6th (11-12 yr. olds), is in the middle of the first year of a 1:1 tablet PC program. I am experiencing one of the most stimulating years of teaching I have ever had. Since every student has a computer that they can take home and our school has wireless connectivity, my teaching and learning ideas are only limited by what I can dream up. So I am open to any techniques that will supercharge learnng. I am now longing to take one particular next step, venturing into global learning. Maybe running science experiments here that a distant school is also running, then sharing data and analzing resuts. Maybe partnering with schools worldwide to share cultural and scientific information on a regular basis -- I'm not quite sure yet, but I am willing to try almost anything. My large teaching units are Atmosphere and Weather (Sep-Dec.), Magnetism and Electricity (Jan.-Mar.), and Human Biology (Apr.-June).
My name is Andy Wenger I'm the lead programmer for an indie educational game company. I live in Switzerland and work with two good friends that both live in California. You got to love video chat! My reason for joining classroom 2.0 is to get input from educators on how to improve software tools for the classroom. What are the requirements for a useful and truly educational game? In other words what features do you believe would benefit the students and what is it that would make your life easier as teachers? I believe the way to create good educational software is to involve the students and educators as much as possible into the development process.
I'm looking forward to learning from your valuable insights and to sharing information. Thanks for having me!
Hello everybody. I am Ren and I teach a mixed ability Year 5/6 (grades 4/5) class in Oxford UK. I have joined because I am excited about the potential of technology to help me accelerate my children's progress through engaging and stimulating lessons. However, I am a little nervous about it all! I would love to hear from some of you and look forward to learning about what you are all doing. Best regards, Ren
Hi there, I teach ESL at a secondary school in Germany and train teachers on how to incorporate ICT into their lessons. It's not easy to convince teachers that ICT is the future. My own school is not geared for ICT yet and so even I myself struggle to include it into my own lessons.
